11th Annual Highballs & Hibiscus Message from
Jupiter Medical Center’s President and CEO
Each September for the past eleven years, socialites and professionals
from the area have gathered for Highballs & Hibiscus, a fun-filled
evening benefiting a great cause, Women and Children’s Services
at Jupiter Medical Center. The event is one of Jupiter Medical Center
Foundation’s signature fundraisers that kicks off the social season.
This year’s event, slated to take place at Eau Palm Beach on Saturday,
September 25th was scheduled when COVID case counts were at their lowest, the Delta variant
was not a significant concern for the U.S. and vaccination rates were
steadily rising. Unfortunately, at this time the overall number of Covid
cases in Florida remains high due to the recent Delta variant surge. This
coupled with the high transmissibility of the Delta variant, along with
the nature of the event – cocktails, dinner and dancing - keeping
the safety of our community and its children in mind, hospital leadership
has made the decision to postpone Highballs & Hibiscus until September 2022.
Although the Covid-19 pandemic continues to negatively impact our lives
in so many ways, on a positive note, the Florida Hospital Association
reports a 7.8% decrease in Covid related hospitalizations over the past
week across our state. JMC’s Covid-19 cases reflect a 5% drop in
our urgent care centers and a 25% drop in hospitalizations at JMC over
the past two weeks. This is welcome news and appears to be a promising
trend. Hopefully, we can return to the normalcy of social gatherings and
Our sincere appreciation to our generous sponsors, underwriters, auction
item donors, chairs and committee.
